Hi guys. I am a first time poster here, and I have really enjoyed this forum. I'm looking to put together a rod/reel/ combo for Corson's Inlet and other bay areas. I will use this combo to throw fin-s-fishes on jigheads, topwaters, andy other lures. I need to put together a combo that is light enough to cast often but still strong enough to handle decent fish. I am thinking of a 7.5 foot medium action rod with a soft tip. What size reel do you prefer? How many yards of 8-12 lb line should it be able to hold? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
